Flying Pig

The weekend Andrew got promoted was the same weekend as the Flying Pig race in Cincinnati.  Andrew and his brother Josh ran the 1/2 marathon while Peter, Susan and I opted for the 5K.  It was a fun race and the boys did great, running the 1/2 marathon in under 2 hours....maybe someday I will be able to do that!  Anyway, we had a fun time in Cincinnati and a great time visiting with his family over the weekend celebrating Andrew's promotion and our runs!

Rice Cereal

William had his first taste of rice cereal on June 13th.  He didn't really know what t think about it at first, but soon he was gobbling it up!  Of course the girls wanted in on the action and took turns feeding their brother.

Olivia wanted her own bowl

Mommy, I'm a big boy...I can do it by myself!

Cinco de Mayo Fiesta

Our friends Ross and Jill had us over on the 6th to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.  It was lots of fun, there were fun party props, delicious food, yummy margaritas, and lots of laughs!  I had to steal some pictures from Jill's blog, she is really good with the camera and got some great shots!

Major Vrabec

After a very long wait, Andrew finally pinned on the rank of Major!  We are so proud of him and all the awesome work he does.  I sometimes forget how hard of a job he has and what he is doing all day while I am taking care of the kids.  He is an incredible Air Force officer and an awesome Daddy and he is able to balance the 2 in a way that seems flawless and effortless although I am positive its not!  I am so lucky to have him as my husband, the father of my children, and my friend!

Andrew's parents, his brother, and his grandma Lois all came out for the ceremony and it was it was so interesting to hear his Colonel talk about all of his career accomplishments.  Andrew is not one to toot his own horn, but his Colonel did a good job highlighting all the major points/accomplishments/awards through out his career and its all very impressive.  He has come such a long way from his days at the Air Force Academy and we all just couldn't be more proud of him.  Congrats Major Vrabec!!!
